Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

Look, people are out here with serious faces saying the city is going to steal your land and demolish your house, and that no outreach was done to the public. These aren't the kinds of things you can have opinions on, these are falsifiable facts. The 2040 debate has clearly gone off the rails becaus...

Re: Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan

Mndible keeps saying "elected officials" but it's not the elected officials that hired a PR team it's planning staff. And after the red-sign brigade started convincing people that the city was going to use eminent domain to seize homes and demolish them, I'm not sure I blame staff for realizing they...

Re: Uptown General Topics & Development Map

I don't remember whose policy it is (maybe the city) but because those promenades are not publicly owned, they don't want curb cuts because it might give people the impression that they can use them? Like it's wild and incredibly dumb but I've been told that's what the city wants.

Don't people even fish in Bde Maka Ska? When I was a wee lad (25+ years ago) my dad and I would go ice fishing on, I think, White Bear Lake.

Re: 501 7th St S

Haha glad I'm not the only one that thought parking garage looking at that rendering. I think amiller92 is right, it's that empty looking elevator corner lobby along with the big windows opening up into empty units. I don't really expect them to render each unit fully furnished so, I guess that's wh...

Re: Suburban City Councils, shenanigans

Look at this disgusting sexist pig that just actually wrote all those words defending the act of posting a naked picture of his ex wife with the explicit purpose of shaming and embarrassing her. Your attitude is remarkably sexist and abusive. It's 2018, have some basic human decency.

Re: Scooter sharing

"Motorized Foot Scooters" are defined in state statute 169.011 and given basically the same "rights and duties" and bicycles in 169.225.

Re: Bike Share

When the bikes cost a couple of hundred dollars each, yeah, that's a huge cost. And docks work when both the origins and destinations are concentrated. Docks don't solve the last mile problem at a transit station because yeah, it works to have a dock on one end of the trip (the transit station) but ...

Hooray, more property off the tax rolls that won't actually be used by the University! Maybe they'll finally fix that door that goes into Burger King from the parking lot.

Re: Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Districts

Municipalities in Minnesota have no way to levy additional property taxes on certain areas. The total tax capacity of the city is calculated by state formulas, all the city or anyone can do is set their tax capacity rate which applies to the whole city.
